Perhaps nowhere else in the world is terroir expression more pronounced and coveted than in the Côte d’Or. With a continental climate, the specific combination of soils, exposure and microclimates within Burgundy’s venerated vineyards cultivates some of the world’s most highly esteemed grapes.
Founded in 1859, Maison Louis Jadot has grown to be one of the most venerable, most trusted and revered wine houses through a long-term policy of acquisition or management of exceptional vineyard lands, and owns 528 acres of vineyards, including nearly 280 acres of the most prestigious Premier and Grand Cru plots. Jadot’s principles of vinification balance tradition and technology, and focus on the purest expression of each wine’s terroir, taking the lightest possible hand in winemaking and a restrained use of oak maturation. For its village level Côte d’Or wines, Jadot practices a further, though expensive, practice called réplis, in which wines of a higher appellation are incorporated into a wine bearing the appellation below them.
Jadot’s cellar practices, including long macerations, the choice of wild yeast when possible for fermentation, fermentation temperature and other winemaking methods are also designed to preserve the character of the fruit in the wines. For both red and white wines, Maison Louis Jadot places great importance on the restrained use of new oak in the aging process. Time in cask and percentage of new oak is dictated differently by each vintage. In keeping with its non-interventionist philosophy, Jadot considers that very great vintages, complete and harmonious by themselves, require minimum contact with new oak.
